A.S. Face 1617: Chris

Face 1617

I am a soon to be medically retired SSgt in the U.S. Air Force.  My condition really started affecting me in 2009.  Being only 25 I just assumed my job was taking a toll on my back, but it was pain like I’ve never felt before.  I went through a few Drs and chiropractors with no avail and began my daily regiment of Aleve.  It wasn’t until 2015 my newest Doc really started digging into the problem.  On 11 Sep 2015 my rheumatologist diagnosed me.  The Humira wasn’t providing the results they wanted and changed me to Enbrel.  I began taking Percocets to help with the pain and thanks to my amazing wife, I was able to kick those before they became another problem for me to face.  This condition is truly a nasty ordeal to deal with and I am thankful I found the support pages on Facebook.
